So, my idea to make a “Music Monday” post every Monday for 2018 has been a complete failure, but that’s all going to change in 2019. Or not. I can’t tell the future. All I can tell you is that The Sonder Bombs make me happy, and they released an album, and that album is fantastic. I love everything about this band. Their songs hit me hard, and the combination of punk and ukulele is pure auditor bliss. What really brings it altogether for me are the powerful and expressive vocals from the Modern Female Rockstar Willow Hawks (and can I just say that Willow Hawks is a kick ass name?)
Everybody who loves music should check out The Sonder Bombs. And once you hear them, I know you’ll want to immediately purchase all of their music and merch, so check out there Bandcamp (link below) and support this band, because it should be a crime that The Sonder Bombs haven’t gone Triple Platinum yet. Other ways to help support the band would be to share their music on social media. Spam their songs all over Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, and of course on WordPress!!
Okay, so this weeks featured artist is a little different from other artists I’ve shared in that I only discovered this band a little over 5 days ago. The Sonder Bombs are a local band (I live in NE Ohio and they are from Cleveland) that I heard while listening to an NPR segment on Uke Punk music. I had no idea what Uke Puke was, but I love Ukulele, and I love Punk, so I was curious enough to check it out, and I have to say it was the best decision I have made in the past year.
The sound is something familiar, but it molds so many of my favorite sounds that I’ve never thought about mixing that it creates a unique blend I can’t get enough of. I must have listened to this track, Switzerland, a few dozen times over the holiday weekend and it makes me feel…happy.
I’ve never been one to go see bands play live, but this is a local band trying to make a name for themselves, and I want to see them succeed, so I plan on seeing them live in their next couple of shows. Below is a link to there bandcamp, which has their next shows listed. I strongly encourage everyone to listen to this song, share this post if you enjoyed it, and spread the word about this amazing band.
